    Boudhanath Stupa is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Kathmandu valley. A great stupa in the center of city. If you are traveling to Kathmandu, please do visit and spread the word around

    It was so peaceful to enter the shrine. So many devotees attending the temple on a daily basis. Nice opportunity to see the main deity up so close.

    Unfortunately still visible damages after the earthquake (2015). This UNESCO World Heritage Site offers ancient palaces and temples. Steep entrance fee of 1000 NPR even when you just need to cross the square if you are foreigner, after 6 pm free. You will be constantly bothered by number of young men offering to be your guide. The major Interesting thing to see here is "Kumari (The Living Goddess). Taleju Temple is the landmark of the square unfortunately is not open to public. What I detested were motor bikes operation on the square in the evening.

    If you are new to large Asian and middle eastern markets, hang onto your hat (and your belongings)! This bazaar is a wild experience, even for the well-heeled global traveler. You will be packed shoulder to shoulder with bikes, cars, fruit carts, and other people--to name a few things! But the noise, sights, and stalls will be something to remember. Sensory overload for sure! What can't you find at this bazaar?

    Recommend keeping your money close and do not bother with a large camera/any camera.

    Be brave and give it a try! It is sure to result in a story.

    This 144 feet tall statue is the tallest Shiva in the world. Built of cement, copper and zinc, this statue has a very beautiful smiling face of Lord Shiva. It is in Bharkatpur in Nepal. About 2 hr drive from Kathmandu.
    A nominal entrance fee is levied. The entire location is calm , beautiful and well maintained. A shop selling snacks and artifacts is in place near the statue.
    A must - see in Nepal.

    It’s kinda nice there. I was there while on my way to the hills and was there again at the evening on my way back. The place and surrounding area looked quite charming with all the lights. There’s a evening bazaar too I think.

    Why is this place added twice here? Please fix. And also some locations are hard to find in this. Even with exact spelling from Google maps or such.

    Visiting this monastery gives you a nice impression of the well decorated interior of this traditional building. Also interesting to watch daily life of the monks.

    The display on Nepal's indigenous healing and industrial-use plants was great. A lot of the specimens however seemed dead in that exhibit (Maybe because they were mountaing growing plants). Nonetheless the placards were informative. The greenhouses were closed to the public when I went but the grounds were pleasant to walk. It was a great break from the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu.

    This is a busy shopping district adjacent to Kathmandu Durbar Square. It is very busy crowded with people, cars and motorbikes. It is a good place to taste the life of locals in Kathmandu where we could see different vendors selling wide range of stuffs. In our opinion, it is not a conducive place to do shopping since it is busy and chaotic. We were there just to feel the local livelihoods as part of city life in Kathmandu, so it is perfectly fine for us. Suggest to walk to this place since the road is extremely congested. It is walkable from Thamel district on the way to Durbar Square. Not difficult to navigate using Google Map if you purchase the prepaid data SIM card at the airport with fees of NPR800 for 5GB valid for 28 days.
